More from Montreal

Sunday, 29 April 2007

Well, the measles are gone and we have moved right into ear infections in both ears. So no new pictures of Ava again. Here are some more pictures that I took the weekend we were in Montreal.

Taken at my cousin's indoor soccer game...



More pictures of my cousin's adorable puppy Aurora. Here she is looking out the sliding doors...



and playing outside...



Have a great evening and thanks for looking.

Pictures that are kind of new

Wednesday, 25 April 2007

I say that because they are new in the sense that you guys haven't seen them before. Because Ava had the measles this week and because I only see her for a few hours a day now that I am working, I haven't been able to take many pictures lately. I am hoping to take some new ones this weekend and sometime in the near future I hope to do my sister's engagement pictures. I don't usually do pictures of adults, so this will be different for me.

Anyway, here are some pictures to keep you coming back until I start posting some new stuff. These pictures are random shots from the past three months...



I also leave you with some McDreamy eye candy since tomorrow is Thursday...

The measles

Monday, 23 April 2007

Ava has the measles. That is the official diagnosis from the doctor. Not sure how she got them or where they came from, but she became covered in them on Sunday. So no new pictures for a little while, but in the meantime I will keep posting some stuff from the last little while that I haven't posted before. Here is another shot of Ava in the bear costume from her birthday on April 11th.

Thanks for looking and hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather.

Rest in peace, Charles.

Friday, 20 April 2007

Unfortunately, Charles the bunny has passed away. It's a shame - he was a good rabbit and he was a real pleasure to work with.

The bear costume

Thursday, 19 April 2007

I had the day off on Ava's birthday last Wednesday, so we went to visit my parents. These pictures were taken in their living room. Big thanks to my Aunt Loreta for the bear costume. It was perfect for pictures - love the texture.

And yep - that's me in the picture looking in through the front window...

Birthday party pictures

Tuesday, 17 April 2007

Here are some pictures from Ava's birthday party. Ava had her own little cake to destroy and destroy it she did. As you can see a huge mess was made and a big cleanup followed.

Telling my grandmother a tall tale...



the birthday cake gets demolished...



exhaustion after a job well done...



the bath with her cousins that followed.



Thanks for looking!

The Birthday Party

Monday, 16 April 2007

Yesterday was Ava's first birthday party. It was a fun watching her rip into her cake. Pictures coming - I have recently started back to work and there aren't enough hours in the day anymore. I hope to get some up tomorrow night.

Here is Ava when she started her cake...



And later once she figured things out:

Toronto vs. Montreal

Tuesday, 10 April 2007

On Saturday a large group of Canadiens fans got together with a small group of Leafs fans and "I don't care who wins as long as the Canadiens don't" fans to watch the hockey game. There was a lot of trash talking during the course of the game. This quickly ended once the Leafs defeated the Canadiens 6-5, but it resumed later the next day oncewhen the Islanders won bumping the Leafs from the playoffs...

Meet Aurora

Sunday, 8 April 2007

On the weekend we went to Montreal to visit my family. Here is the newest addition to the Castanheiro family - my cousin's 8 week old golden lab, Aurora. She was absolutely adorable and looks exactly like Scarlett did as a puppy. Watching her bounce all over the place brought back a lot of memories of Scarlett as a puppy. It also made me realize that I am lucky that experience didn't turn me grey at 26 when we got her. Scarlett was more work than Ava was as a little baby!

Stay tuned for pictures taken during the hockey game Saturday night. Being Leafs fans in Montreal surrounded by a family full of Canadiens fans was interesting. Too bad the pictures don't capture the trash talking...

Ava and the tutu

Tuesday, 3 April 2007

Today started out much the same as any other day. I was surrounded by my favourite little beggars this morning at breakfast (Ava already had hers - she just has to follow Scarlett everywhere she goes). Luckily my camera was right there on the table.



Ava slept a little longer than usual this morning, allowing me to finish her new tutu.



She didn't seem to mind it and crawled around in it for a while.



Then Grandad arrived and turned it into a head dress. Ava was quite amused...



Thanks for looking!

Remember this baby?

Remember the little baby in the picture on the left? That's Ava at 2 weeks old. The picture on the right is of her today - eight days away from her first birthday. I can't believe that she is a year old already.

Girls' day out

Monday, 2 April 2007

Today my mom treated Ava and I to a girls' day out. We had our hair done at the salon while Ava patiently waited...



strutting our new hairstyles on Wyndham Street...



on the road to our first shopping destination...



waiting for mom at the flower shop...



eating lunch at McDonalds. It was seniors day. Many of the elderly people (some crazy and some not) stopped to talk to Ava...



It was a great day and also a rare day that I document a day outside the house. It was fun. Normally I am embarrassed to pull my camera out and take pictures in public but have decided that now that I am 30, I really could care less what people think. :)

Thanks for looking (and thanks mom for a great day)!
